A historic Miami hotel is set to undergo a multimillion-dollar renovation and rebrand.
The Newport Beachside Hotel & Resort in Sunny Isles Beach will receive a $42 million transformation and be rebranded to The Sunny, according to the hotel’s Miami-based owner HB Capital Group.
Located at 16701 Collins Ave., the 10-floor hotel will reopen under its new name in late 2024 with full upgrades to the entire property, said a spokesperson for the privately held real estate investment company.
The renovations include 339 guest rooms, the hotel’s lobby, pier restaurant and eateries.
EoA Group, an architecture and interior design firm in Coral Gables, has been hired to work on the renovation, according to HB Capital.
The company announced it will restore Sunny Isles Beach’s landmark Newport Fishing Pier. Originally built in 1936, the pier and is located behind the hotel.
HB Capital said it will upgrade its ocean-facing pier restaurant, Sandbar at Newport Pier, to become an upscale dining destination.
According to current renovation plans, six food and beverage outlets will be built into The Sunny, including the celebrity chef-founded Mexican-American restaurant ¡Viva!, by Ray Garcia; a grab-and-go concept called Lovebirds Café; an adults-only bar and lounge called The Newport Room; and a poolside tiki bar.
The Sunny will be designed as a beach getaway with access to 300 linear feet of beachfront, an oceanfront pool, an integrated pool and beach club, and fire pits. Other amenities include a private art collection, a fitness center, a spa and salon, and 22,000 square feet of event space.
Guests will also be in proximity to family-friendly outdoor activities, such as watersports, beach games, fishing lessons, kids’ programs and live music, HB Capital stated.
